As I'm the first to post a message on this board, I don't reckon there's much of a chance anyone will read it - but here goes...
Joe and I are the proud owners of a cottage in France - this is no word of a lie - we took the plunge when we were there in June, and will be going to sign for it in September, all going well. Raucous isn't it....
We did it because at some stage we would like to live there, and we figured that we ought to get something whilst we're in a position to increase our mortgage in Britain.
It's in a mountain village called St Gervais sur Mare in the Languedoc, not far from Beziers. It's a two bedroom house, with two bathrooms, a terrace and a lovely living room with an open fire. It's a traditional house made of stone, and is part 14th century, and part 18th century. The village is quiet, but has a bar, a restaurant/auberge, a pizzeria and quite a few shops (baker, butcher, grocer, chemist etc).
It's about an hour to the sea, and there's swimming in the river nearby. If anyone wants to go there for a holiday, they are welcome - we promise to offer competitive rates...!
The nearest airports are Montpelier (just over an hour), Carcassone (about 1.5 - 2 hours), Toulouse (probably about 2 hours) and Perpignan (about 2.5 hours).
Ben - we have pictures on the computer which we could send you so you can put them on the site - what do you think?
Anyway, we hope everyone is well
lots of love
Theresa and Joe
